Increase your condo’s value
Make your condo stand out from the pack with these four easy upgrades
Duncan McAllister – Metro Canada
Many Toronto condominium units are chosen from a generic selection of floor plans that include builder-grade fixtures.
Builder-grade keeps the costs down, but everything from flooring to cabinetry is the same basic design. So what can you do to upgrade the look and increase the value of your Toronto condo unit?
Here are four easy upgrades that will make your unit really stand out, that you can do without a whole lot of construction:
Faucets and bathroom fixtures
These are an easy upgrade that have impact. Kohler Canada makes a magnificent line of kitchen and bathroom upgrades that can be easily installed by a plumber without a lot of work. Check out Kohler’s Refinia polished chrome faucets for example, with soft lines inspired by nature that include nylon supply hoses for simplified installation.
Elegant new window coverings
These can easily change the look of a room and add value to your unit. Lerner Interiors on Bathurst street offer custom design services and a range of products from suppliers such as Hunter Douglas. You can choose from designer sun shades and gliding window panels, to woven wood, Roman shades and motorized power blinds.
Condo lighting fixtures
These can dramatically improve the atmosphere of a room. You can replace your mundane stock lighting fixtures with a range of exciting new high-tech lumieres. With so many choices on the market, you may want to enroll the services of a specialized home lighting consultant such as Mylight in Toronto.
Space-saving custom shelving and cabinetry
Several manufacturers and design houses offer innovative solutions for intelligent use of space in smaller condo units. These custom, built-in units vary from bookshelves and entertainment centres, to home office units and wall beds. Designers such as the Condo Box on King street, specialize in these types of installations. Available in a variety of finishes, these help you get the most out of your space.
